Oh the irony, Google doesn’t like being spidered!

There’s a delicious irony when the site that we expect to spider our sites doesn’t like to be spidered itself.

I’d run a search and then opened each of the results, worked through them and flicked to page 2 and repeated. I then went to refresh page 2, not sure why, and got this lovely little “are you human” check.

google-bot-checkWhy, yes I am! and it let me proceed.

Now, this doesn’t affect me in any way, if I have to occasionally enter in a captcha it’s not a big deal.

Has anyone had any problems because of this?
